3:57 am
stock market in history. but is great. that was great. our opponents would say -- maybe he is in trouble. he will do anything. they will do when a thing. i am sure they were thrilled. do you think our opponents were thrilled when they sell the stock market today? i don't think so. by the way, look at this. look get all of that press. man. sleepy joe or- bernie. i don't think they have that much press. wild -- whyoing would i be here tonight? why would i be here? he said -- why would i be here tonight? we don't have the primary. we have already won the thing, you know.
3:58 am
theyd it back because would say that i used terrible language today. there has never been a time when the republican party is so unified as it is now. ever. ever. and you know, you hear about enthusiasm for crazy bernie and that is true. he has some enthusiasm but much less than we have and a much smaller group of people will. there is not a lot of enthusiasm -- there is not a lot of enthusiasm for biden. i thought he gave up the presidency the other day because he said he was running for the senate. i looked at the first lady and i said -- hey, he is running for the senate. and today, he just said -- super thursday.
3:59 am
he is looking forward to super thursday. jobs are booming in our country. incomes are soaring. poverty is plummeting. and wence is surging have completely rebuilt the awesome power of a thing called the united states military. every day for me and for you, it is promises made, promises kept. everyday. [cheers] one of the most important promises i've made is right to this era. you look at it, it is the never-ending wars in the middle east. we are taking our soldiers, we are bringing them home. american troops cannot be the policeman for the world, or to
4:00 am
create democracy in other nations and frankly, probably don't want it. the job of the american military is to secure and defend our country. [cheers] two days ago, the united states signed a deal with the taliban and so that after 19 years of conflict and very close to 20, we can finally begin to bring our amazing troops back home. [cheers] after years of rebuilding foreign nations, we are finally rebuilding our nation and taking care of our own american citizens. [cheers] all of the things we've done, we've wiped out terrorists, we have done so much, and we are a thousand miles away.
4:01 am
you got a lot of big country surrounding afghanistan itself. progress that was made was made possible by the extraordinary valor of our men and our women in uniform. you know that. we pay a special tribute, and i know you pay it, a special tribute to our great wounded warriors and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. [cheers] and as we bring back our troops, we are committed to ensuring that foreign terrorists are denied admission. we must keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country. [cheers] [chanting]
4:02 am
i have to say this. he have thousands of thousands of people outside. somebody was saying if pocahontas, anyone of them, sleepy joe, he doesn't have that. he has very small crowds, but if sleepy joe or if any of them had a crowd 1/10 the size, they go around talking about how big the crowd is. take your cameras and spin them around this big arena. [cheers] [chanting "four more years"]
4:03 am
they don't turn them. do you notice? they don't turn them, but if there was some trouble in a little corner, anything to make us look bad, that camera would turn like a pretzel. i used to think modern equipment can't turn, but we would have a protester -- and i'll say it out loud, we don't have too many protesters anymore, do we? we don't have too many. [cheers]
4:04 am
no fun to be a protester at a trump rally, but do we have a great time at a time probably? [cheers] my administration has also taken the most aggressive action in modern history to protect americans from the coronavirus. you know about this whole thing. horrible. including sweeping travel restrictions. today, we met with the big, great pharmaceutical companies and they are really working hard and they are working smart, and we had a great meeting today with a lot of the great companies. they are going to have vaccines, i think, relatively soon, and they are going to have something that makes you better and that will actually take place we think even sooner. a lot of good things are happening, but we have strong
4:05 am
borders and really, our tough and early actions have proven to be 100% right. we went out, we are doing everything in our power to keep the sick and infected people from coming into our country. we are working on that very hard. we closed our borders very early. i took a lot of heat for that. the member when i closed the borders to certain areas of the world, i took a lot of heat, but there are fringe globalists who would rather keep our borders open and keep our infection, keep all of the infection, let it coming. we are working with other countries -- in all fairness, it is a problem. we are working with other countries. over the last long. bang of time, the flu, the common flu -- you know this, right? from 27,000 to 70,000 people get infected and many people die. think of it. 27,000. you lose 27,000 people to the common flu. one year was much higher than the 70,000 number.
4:06 am
those people die. when you lose 27,000 people a year, nobody knew that. i didn't know that. i said what do we lose from the regular flu, they said 27,000 minimum, it goes up to 70, some times 80. nobody knows that. i told the pharmaceutical companies they have to do a better job with that vaccine, really. they have to do a better job on that. think of it. last year was approximately 36,000 people died. we are working hard on it and we are going to come up with some really great solutions. in the meantime, we are stopping -- [cheers] only in north carolina. only in north carolina.
4:07 am
how many people are from south carolina, by the way? [cheers] well, we love both places, but that was from north carolina. but just to finish up, we've made a lot of progress, we've done a great job with it. we are keeping our border strong. my job is to protect the health of american patients and americans first, and that is what we are doing. [cheers] washington democrats are trying to politicize the coronavirus. denigrating the noble work of our public health professionals, but honestly, not so much anymore. everyone appreciates -- these
4:08 am
are the greatest professionals in the world at what they do. we are actually helping a lot of other countries where they have some very big problems, so we have our professionals in constant touch. i'm in constant touch with some of the leaders and helping them out, but the political attacks from some of the democrats really must stop. we've got all work together on this one to safeguard our people. we are going to safeguard our people, the united states. [cheers] the united states is, right now, ranked by far number one in the world for preparedness. earlier today, when i met with the pharmaceutical companies, things were discussed. the media didn't know, nobody knew. they've never heard this before, and we learned a lot, and maybe that had the impact on the stock market. who knows what happened? but we're going to reduce the severity of what is happening, the duration of the virus. we discussed all of these things.
4:09 am
we will bring these therapies to market as rapidly as possible, and i have to say, the thriving economy the way it is and the most advanced health system on earth, america is so resilient. we know what we are doing. we have the greatest people on earth. greatest health system on earth. [cheers] we have the greatest health system honor. the renewal -- on earth. the renewal over the last three years, we are the best prepared to rise to any occasion. no country is better equipped than america to handle new threats, and no people are more skilled, talented, tough, or driven than americans. americans. [cheers]
4:10 am
and together, we are in the midst of the great american comeback. that's what it is. last month, we added 225,000 new jobs in january alone. that makes 7 million jobs since the election. [cheers] we have destroyed the isis territorial caliphate and we killed the founder and leader of isis, al-baghdadi. he is dead. [cheers] and we took out the world's top terrorist, qasem soleimani, ending his reign of terror forever. [cheers] while the extreme left has been wasting america's time with vile hoaxes and delusional witchhunts, we have been killing terrorists, creating jobs, raising wages, and lifting up american citizens of every race, religion, color, and creed. [cheers]
4:11 am
tomorrow, voters in states across the nation will head to the polls for super tuesday. not super thursday. oh, he said super thursday. you can't do these things. can you imagine if i said super thursday? it would be over. i would be over. no matter how good you are, certain things -- as an example, name like sleepy joe. he's constantly naming the wrong state. great to be in the great state of ohio. i'm sorry, you are in north carolina. no, no, north carolina joe. once that happens, you might as well leave the states because it is his disaster. great to be in idaho. no, you're in iowa. he makes a lot of those mistakes. they are a little scary. we are going to protect your
4:12 am
second amendment, you understand that. but did you see? sleepy joe, did you see sleepy joe were he said last year, 150 million people were killed by guns. in our country. 150 million. that means 50% of our country. that's a big story. can you imagine trump saying that? these people would never let me live it down. [boos] we can't make even a little mistake, right? we can't make even a little, tiny, tiny mistake. if we make a tiny mistake, it is headline news. they say things like 150 million people killed, guns. they say super thursday. they say georgia. he's looking forward to winning
4:13 am
georgia tomorrow. georgia is not in super tuesday. so many mistakes. you can't do that when you negotiate with china. you can't do that when you negotiate with these countries. can't do that. [cheers] those mistakes would be very expensive. and you have mini mike. mini mike. he's being interviewed tonight on fox. fox. they want to be politically correct. they end up interviewing more democrats than republicans. i don't know what is going on with fox, but they are interviewing this guy the night before. mini mike, aye aye aye. the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates. can we agree? the worst in history -- i would get down reload, but i don't want to copy at.
4:14 am
they all said oh, do that again where you get down low. but if i do that again, it is a copy. it's a copy. no. no, no. you never like to copy, even if you are copying yourself. you do it once. that was a big hit. you do it once and say, that was nice. don't do it again. if it doesn't work the second time, it is embarrassing. he is a disaster waiting to happen. he's a mess. no matter which democratic candidate you are talking about, and you understand each one of these candidates -- and you see what is happening, right? it is being rigged against -- it is sad. it is being rigged against crazy bernie. crazy bernie is going to go
4:15 am
crazy. i think crazy bernie is going to go more crazy when he sees what they are doing. mayor pete buttigieg. mayor pete quit out last night. then i heard a senator from a state we are going to win, we are going to win that state, but she dropped out. sounds like they made a deal. they both supported sleepy joe. do you know why? they made a deal. you know why? quid pro quo, that's why. quid pro quo. [cheers] quid pro quo. they made a deal. impeach them. they should be impeached. they should be impeached. [cheers] quid pro quo.
4:16 am
but they've embraced an extreme left-wing agenda. their plans with massively raise your taxes, destroyed our liberty, muzzle our faith, and erase our sovereignty. the democrat party has gone crazy, whether it is bernie sanders' plan to eliminate private health care, elizabeth pocahontas -- by the way, she is history. she is history. i came up with that name far too early. i should have waited, but it didn't matter. i thought she was making a comeback. those embers were burning a little bit a couple months ago. they never caught on. she will probably lose the state of massachusetts to bernie. she doesn't know what to do because you are not supposed to lose the state of massachusetts. she's the senator.
4:17 am
she's the senator from massachusetts. i think she's going to lose it to burning. -- bernie. miss michigan -- did you see that? we are leading in michigan, wisconsin, florida. we are leading in south carolina. we are leading in north carolina. [cheers] we are leading in new hampshire. we are leading in the great state of florida. that was one of the first ones the other -- our last election. hey, how great was the 2016 election? [cheers] one of the greatest nights, one of the highest-rated television nights in the history of television. remember, this is going to be a quick one. that wasn't so easy for them. i love the scene of that
4:18 am
convention center where hillary was getting ready to speak and she found out she lost. [cheers] but elizabeth warren had a plan to eliminate our borders. or mini mike's plan to eliminate your second amendment. mike bloomberg wants to eliminate your second amendment. don't worry about it. it's not going to happen. not going to happen for him. sleepy joe, he doesn't even know where he is, what he is doing, or what office he is running for. i honestly don't think he knows what office he is running for. and it doesn't matter. maybe he gets in because he is a little more moderate, but he's not going to be running it. they are going to put them into a home and other people will be running the country, and they are going to be super left radical crazy. they are going to be super left radical crazy. joe is going to be in a home. he'll be watching television, everything will be just fine. the insanity of washington
4:19 am
democrats is why millions of registered democrat voters are joining our movement. they are joining our great republican party. [cheers] [chanting "four more years"] we have the enthusiasm in our party. i mean it. i constantly hear about the enthusiasm. they are fighting each other, they hate each other, they don't know what is going on. we have all the love, we have all the enthusiasm, and we know what we are doing. we know what we are doing. [cheers] so we are thrilled to be joined tonight by many really great,
4:20 am
terrific, brilliant, wonderful warriors. even though it comes from a slightly different state, but not too far by, somebody who really has this thing, he's become a great friend of mine and what he did for justice kavanaugh. do you remember that? one of the greatest statements ever made in the united states senate. senator lindsey graham. come on up, lindsay. [cheers] lindsey graham. come on up, lindsey. [applause] come here.
4:21 am

[cheers] thank you for sticking with judge kavanaugh. mr. president, everybody in this room has one thing in common. we all have your back.

[cheers] david rouser. ted budd. they are warriors. these guys are unbelievable the way they fight. i'll tell you, i came here.
4:23 am

4:24 am
diamond and silk, right? diamond and silk. [cheers] where are they? we love them. >> ok, you all know we are about to win another election! [cheers] and i saw mini mike on fox. >> uh-huh. >> president trump is this hot. [cheers]
4:25 am
while the media continues to play the race card, we are going to continue to play the trump card so we can win, win, and win. [cheers] pres. trump: you know, the first lady a long time ago now -- how long is that? probably almost five years ago. she said there are these two women on the internet.
4:26 am
they are unbelievable. i said i know, i hear that all the time. she said no. the next day, she said i saw them again, they are unbelievable. i saw them, i fell in love, and everyone fell in love with diamond and silk, so thank you. [cheers] some people that have really been helpful to me. corey lewandowski, david bossi, and pam bondi. great people. [cheers] and thanks also to all of the people who are working to make the 2020 national convention right here in charlotte and outstanding success. rnc chairman ron a mcdaniels. rnc cochairman tommy hicks, and convention president marcia lee kelly. thank you, everybody. [cheers] they are doing a great job.
4:27 am
i'll tell you, they are going to spend a lot of money and do a great job. should we do a great job or ok job, it doesn't matter as long as you win. you know what i did when we won last time? someone else took the convention centers, spent a fortune, and i took a hotel ballroom. if i win, nobody cares and if i don't -- if you win, nobody cares what room you are in. if you lose, nobody cares what room you are in, right? so we took a nice ballroom. that's it, no big deal. i figure this way if we win, nobody cares and if we lose, i'm out of there. i save a hell of a lot of money. but i never thought we were going to lose. that's one of the things they like to spread. trump felt he wasn't going to win. yeah, i'm running because -- that's not the deal. it's always possible you don't win, but i thought we were going to win. we were getting crowds like this. to be honest, i think our crowds now are bigger, stronger, and even more enthusiastic. [cheers]
4:28 am
i really think they are more enthusiastic than ever before. we are eight months away. that's a long time. it is like it is not even our -- in case you haven't heard, we've got it made in the primary. but -- and for us, we are really not even to political season, and we are getting crowds like this. all over, we were all over the last few weeks. we like to troll. we like to go tonight before one of their primaries. we do a little trolling. we do a little trolling. bernie sanders was very upset. why would he be there? i want to win.
4:29 am
i guess that's a good reason. [cheers] but honestly, when you are two months or three months, we are getting numbers that are unbelievable. colorado, we went. we went to iowa. every place we've gone, new hampshire. every place we've gone, just came out of south carolina. you saw that. that was an incredible one. every place that we have gone, it has been amazing. i'd also like to recognize, and so important, a woman who's really helped us win north carolina in 2016 and i have a feeling that this year, she will even do better because she happened to grow appear. laura trump, and my son eric trump. [applause] two great people. i have to say that about my son, but i know a lot of people don't like their sons that much but laura has been fantastic and what a great job. she knows this state better than anybody in this room except maybe this guy right here. how are we doing? how are we doing in the state? are we doing well? [cheers] we are doing well in pennsylvania, i hear.
4:30 am
south carolina, i know we are doing great there. also with us tonight is a man who's really become a good friend of mine. we were going at it a little at the beginning, but i will tell you, and i would say if i didn't get along, i would not do this. he has been a tremendous supporter and things that we have wanted to do and fights we have had which were so important, he's been up and he will tell you he has been right up in front and he deserves another six-year term and probably a lot longer than that, but he is going to come up and i'm going to ask senator tom tillis. come on up, tom. [applause] tom has really been incredible. he's been working every day. he really wants to fight the radical left and he knows how to fight, take care of our amazing veterans and stop illegal
4:31 am
immigration. tom is a champion for the people of north carolina. this november, we need everybody to go and vote for tom. he is doing great. i hear he is way up in the polls , way up in the polls. tom, say a few words. >> thank you for supporting our president and make sure i come back for another six years and we get him back for four more years. let me tell you about this president. since before this president was ever sworn in, they were trying to impeach him. did he backed down? no. when the media tries to spread false news or fake news, does he backed down? when he makes a promise, does he keep it? when he told you he would cut
4:32 am
taxes, did he do it? when he told you he would support veterans, did he do it? when he told you we would refund the military and become the world's superpower, did he do it? when he told you he was going to confirm supreme court justices, circuit court justices, and the district court judges, 200 of them, did he do it? yes. ladies and gentlemen, you've got a stark choice that starts tomorrow. you need to vote for us so we can go back and do it again, but let me tell you, we can't forget what they are promising you on the other side. bernie sanders is so liberal, he doesn't even call himself a democrat. he calls himself a socialist. this president went to the state of the union and said america will never be a socialist country. [cheers] that's another promise he's going to keep. now finally, ladies and gentlemen, i want to thank the president for coming back.
4:33 am
mr. president, there was one thing you said back in the campaign of 2016. it is the only thing that i don't believe has happened. have you gotten tired of winning? do you want to win some more? do' you want to win some more? you have to get this man reelected so we can give you the free stuff that a free country deserves. free markets, free-trade, freedom of religion. freedom of speech and the freedom for you to protect yourself to bear arms. that is pretty good. [chanting] pres. trump: that was pretty
4:34 am
good, tom. a lot of times, we get people up here and they can't do it. they start breathing bad. did you see the debate? get me off the stage. you guys did not tell me this was going to happen. that was great. we are honored to be joined by an american hero. a veteran of the korean war who just turned 100 years old. his name is george washington perry. thank you for being here. 100 years old. he is 100 and he looks good.
4:35 am
thank you, george. with the help of everyone here tonight, america has become the hottest economy anywhere on the planet earth. since my election, over 2019 -- 200,000 new jobs have been created here in north carolina. we have lifted 10 million people off of welfare including 7 million people off of food stamps. [applause] median household income has reached the highest level ever recorded. think of that. the average on employment rate for my administration is the lowest for any u.s. president in recorded history. the unemployment rate among african-americans, hispanic
4:36 am
americans, asian americans has reached the lowest level in recorded history. very important to me. african-american youth unemployment has reached an all-time low. african-american poverty is at the lowest rate ever recorded. for decades, democrat politicians the trade. they betrayed african-americans. my administration is delivering for african-americans like never before. no president has done more for our black community, no president has done more for our black community. it is an honor to do it. last month here in charlotte, we launched a nationwide campaign to create a better future for all americans. it is called opportunity now.
4:37 am
you know about it. we are also fighting to ensure that working families have access to paid family leave, reducing the cost of childcare and giving 40 million american families an average of $2200 thanks to the republican child tax credit. the republicans are claiming that, we did that, nobody else did that. the democrats are saying how did they do that one? we are reversing decades of calamitous trade policies that decimated manufacturing in north carolina. you know all about it. it is probably the number one reason i am running. the trade deals we are making are unbelievable.
4:38 am
your state lost 43% of all manufacturing jobs after manufacturing -- nafta was signed. i signed the brand-new u.s.-mexico canada agreement. the usmca is a giant victory for north carolina's incredible farmers and factory workers. speaking and farmers and factory workers and small businesses, you know about the death tax. you have a small farm someplace, you have a nice business, you no longer have an inherited stack. if you want to leave it to your children, you can leave it to your children, there is no tax to be paid by your children. they don't have to go back to the evil bankers and borrow money from the bankers. lose the farm, lose the business. it won't happen. i always say it. i know a lot of chilled -- parents that don't love their children very much.
4:39 am
is there anybody in this room that does not love their children? these raise your hand. please raise your hand. nobody? that is because we are in north carolina. you love your children. if you don't, it does not matter. if you don't love your children, don't leave them a thing. you don't have the inheritance tax anymore, that is great. a lot of people -- this is on the issue of immigration. every democrat running for president supports free federal welfare were illegal aliens on your tax.
4:40 am
not only does illegal immigration brain our treasury but it threatens illegal lives. to illegal aliens in maryland who had been previously charged with attempted murder were released. they went and murdered a teenage girl, beating her with a baseball bat and slashing her with a machete. the entire democratic field supports deadly sanctuary cities that release dangerous criminals to terrorize your communities. right here in north carolina, believe it or not, the sanctuary county -- you know all about this. they killed her and dumped her body into the woods. last year alone, sanctuary jurisdictions in north carolina, how did that happen to north carolina? deliberately set free hundreds and hundreds of dangerous criminal aliens.
4:41 am
they were charged with gun crime, sexual assault, kidnapping, even murder. we have to change it. roy cooper vetoed a bill that would save north carolina lives and ban sanctuary cities. what was he thinking? your republican senator tom tillis has introduced a bill allowing american victims to sue sanctuary cities for the horrible pain, anguish and suffering they inflicted on people. wall"]ng "build that
4:42 am
we are building the wall. we are building the wall. we are building the wall. mexico is paying for the wall. we built 127 miles as of today. 127 miles. -- we built 127 miles as of today. 127 miles. i have had obstruction like you can't believe it. i created space force. i can do anything. i can get it. tom tillis knows this. mark knows this, if i wanted $.10 for the wall, they did not want to do it. now we got it. you think that is easy? nobody else could have done this. we are doing this and we are building our hearts away. we will be building many miles a week. we are over 125 miles of the wall.
4:43 am
i went to border patrol. they said what is your wish? the barriers up top, they want everything. it is called a no climb proviso. i said what does the word pro-visor mean? it means you're not able to climb over it. it is very tough. a couple of weeks ago, they were climbing the wall. the fire department had to take them down. that is what the no climb is. it is a little more expense -- expensive. one of voice. we are building the wall. it is going great. they said he is building the
4:44 am
wall but mexico is not paying for it. some of you understand. i told a few people last weekend, it got leaked to the fake news media. if you want to and sanctuary cities in north carolina and across america, you have only one choice, you must vote republican. [applause] thanks to our tireless efforts to secure the border, we reduced legal border crossings by 75% since last spring. we ended catch and release. one of the worst loopholes you have ever seen. catch and release. then you say where do you live? they don't know. let's face it, they don't know. i understand that. it is not to be laughed at. they don't know. they say i don't know.
4:45 am
mexico, may be. you are about as mexican as i am. he is as mexican as i am. look at that hat. are you mexican? no you're not. are you? he is. it is like elizabeth warren. she was an indian. i said -- i said i have more indian blood in me then you have. i have none. she said this is terrible. she went out and got a test and it turned out not so good. what a phony she is. what a phony. washington democrats have never been more extreme. 132 congressional democrats have signed up for bernie sanders's health care takeover while the washington democrats are trying to destroy your health care and your social security.
4:46 am
they are going to destroy your social security. they used to say i'm going to end it. we will soon be four years and all i have done is make it stronger. my administration is protecting your social security. your medicare and is fighting to give you great health care. you're going to have great health care. we are defending your right to keep the doctor and to keep the plan of your choice. remember president obama? you should impeach him. 28 times he lied. 28 times he said on record you can keep your dr., you can keep your plan. it was not true. impeach him. we are making health care better and much cheaper while premiums more than doubled in the last
4:47 am
five years before i took office. we are now offering plans that are up to 60% less expensive and they are better plans. we are protecting people with pre-existing conditions and we always will. we are trying to terminate the supreme court of the united states -- in their supreme court of the united states the worst health care in the world. we will give you the best health care you have ever seen at a lower price. and again, protecting pre-existing conditions. protecting pre-existing conditions. we are fighting to stop surprised medical billing. you get all sorts of surprises. we have people who take a blood test and at one place it is $26 and in another place it is $2000. the same blood test. maybe the cheap one is better, who knows? surprise, medical billing.
4:48 am
that is out. i signed an executive order on closing price transparency. when providers have to show their prices, all those prices fall very fast. it is a big thing. that is a big thing. we approved a record number of generic drugs that are just as good as namebrand drugs. a fraction of the cost. we have given them a lot of political pressure not to do that. to care for our amazing veterans, we passed v.a. choice and v.a. accountability. nobody said it could be done. instead of waiting online for days and days and weeks and weeks to see a doctor, you go outside, you get a doctor, we pay the bill, you get fixed up. what a great thing. i got it done. they have been trying to pass it for the past 50 years.
4:49 am
those people over there were a great help. we have passed the spectacular right to try. you know what that is. hopefully nobody in the room needs right to try. we are combating the opioid epidemic, drug overdoses have declined for the first time in nearly 31 years. it's a big problem. we have launched new initiatives combating kidney disease and alzheimer's. we are pursuing new advances in neonatal research to care for america's youngest patients and breaking all records in so doing. virtually every democratic candidate has declared their unlimited support for extreme late-term abortions.
4:50 am
ripping babies straight from the mother's womb right up until the very moment of birth. at about that? that is why i have asked congress to prohibit late-term abortion of babies because republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift of god. then you have the governor of virginia, the baby is born. the baby is born and he says then you go over and start talking to the mother as to whether or not you want the baby. this is the governor of virginia. the governor of virginia, he is a beauty. rumor -- remember what he did? he went to dance like michael jackson and his wife stopped him. he got lucky. the baby is born and then he talks to the mother, the doctor will now talk.
4:51 am
he will make a decision as to whether or not the baby lives. the democrat party is the party of high taxes, high crime, on -- unlimited regulations, open borders, late-term abortions, socialism, latent corruption and the total obliteration of your second amendment. the republican party is the party of the american worker, the american dream and the late, great, abraham lincoln. [chanting "usa"] so many people came up to me tonight and they want me to fight and we are doing it for school choice so that every child who needs it gets it. no parent should ever be forced to send their child to a failing government school.
4:52 am
i passed criminal justice reform to give former prisoners a second chance at life. alice johnson. do we love alice johnson? this could not have been done by anyone other than the republican party. i recognize israel's true capital. i opened the republican embassy in jerusalem. -- the american embassy in jerusalem. we recognized israeli sovereignty over the golan heights. our historic investment in the united states military includes $200 million to a place that nobody has heard of in this audience. $300 million for marine corps air stations. more than $500 million for marine corps air station new river.
4:53 am
listen to this one. no democrat is going to do this. they don't even want to spend money on the military. they don't like the military. $1.2 billion. for camp lejeune. $1.2 billion. do you think a guy like sleepy joe is going to? he does not know what it means. we need to have a strong military. and i came in, our military was in sad shape, it was depleted. we rebuilt it, two point $5 trillion went into our military. for years, you watched as your politicians apologized for america. now you have a president who is standing up for america and we are standing up for the people of north carolina and always will.
4:54 am
at stake in our present battle is the actual survival of our nation itself. if you want your children to inherit the blessings of generations of americans who fought and died to secure us, secure our freedom, we must devote everything we have toward victory in november november 3. to be exact. only this way can we save the america we love and drain the washington swamp. that is much more vicious, much dirtier, much deeper than i ever thought but we are kicking -- with your help, we will lift millions more of our citizens
4:55 am
from welfare to work, dependence and independence, poverty to prosperity. we will elect a republican congress to create a fair, safe, sane and lawful system of immigration. we will continue with the great tom tillis. i don't think anybody wants to run against tom. we will reelect tom tillis. we are going to reelect him. if we don't, i am going to be so angry at you. i'll he come back here a few times a year. tom is going to be great. i think you're in great shape. one more hand for tom tillis. [applause]
4:56 am
we don't even know who is running against him. nobody wants to run against him. we will continue to enact new trade deals that result in products being stamped with that beautiful, beautiful, beautiful phrase -- "made in the usa." we will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine, finding new cures for childhood cancer and ending the aids epidemic in less than nine years. we have already started. who would have thought that? we will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty and the right to keep and bear arms. your second amendment rights are under siege. they are under siege. you can forget your second amendment.
